  3. Technician William J. Brennan, aboard the D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) helped place a new air gun into the water for a check before beginning Leg 51 of the Deep Sea Drilling Project in the harbor of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The air gun, which was a larger version of the bolt equipment the ship had used since 1968, was towed approximately 100 feet behind the ship and fired between 500 and 2,000 pounds of pressure at 10 second intervals. It was the sound source (in conjunction with a smaller air gun for better definition) for seismic profiling records. The larger gun, a 120 cubic inch PAR, provided deeper penetration. With these guns seismic records provided a reliable picture of sub-ocean bottom topography. November 1976.

  8. The D/V Glomar Challenger (ship) was a deep sea research and scientific drilling vessel for oceanography and marine geology studies and used primarily for the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Scripps Institution of Oceanography was the managing institution under contract to the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the project. The vessel was operated by the Global Marine Corporation; Glomar is a truncation of Global Marine. The second part of its name came as a tribute to the accomplishments of the oceanographic survey vessel HMS Challenger. The ship is seen here off the coast of Coast Rica. 1982.
